Publisher Description

From the #1 New York Times bestselling author of The Nightingale and The Great Alone comes an incandescent story about the resilience of the human spirit, the triumph of hope, and the meaning of home.
In the rugged Pacific Northwest lies the Olympic National Forest—nearly a million acres of impenetrable darkness and impossible beauty. From deep within this old growth forest, a six-year-old girl appears. Speechless and alone, she offers no clue as to her identity, no hint of her past.
Having retreated to her western Washington hometown after a scandal left her career in ruins, child psychiatrist Dr. Julia Cates is determined to free the extraordinary little girl she calls Alice from a prison of unimaginable fear and isolation. To reach her, Julia must discover the truth about Alice’s past—although doing so requires help from Julia’s estranged sister, a local police officer. The shocking facts of Alice’s life test the limits of Julia’s faith and strength, even as she struggles to make a home for Alice—and for herself.
“One of [Kristin Hannah’s] most compelling and riveting novels.”—Booklist

Slightly Smiling Face“I really loved the premise of this book, I just would have enjoyed it more if the focus was more on Alice and her relationships with the people around her. I liked Ellie and Julia, and even Ellie’s love story with Cal. However, Julia and Max felt forced. I didn’t buy their love, it just happened so fast and felt like it was there because the main character “needed” a brooding/mysterious man to fall in love with. The parts focused on them and Max by himself took me out of the story and felt unnecessary. Overall, I did enjoy the book though.”

“It was a little slow and wasn’t something that I couldn’t put down, but it was still a good story and would recommend it.”
Slightly Smiling Face“I adore this author! Don’t pick up her books unless you’re ready for the emotional rollercoaster, though. She makes me cry EVERY. SINGLE. TIME. Beautifully written with intense scenes that will have you questioning where the story will go.”
